The mayor of St. Athanasius, Andre St.-Pierre, said Michelle Morin would visit the area frequently. As far as I know, he was alone this time. Except usually, he would come with some friends from the River-do-Loop, He explains.

It is a remote area and the forests are very dense. The only place he could walk, in my opinion, was on the river.

Water is very high at this time of year. More than June or July. I imagine why SQ did not ask for the help of volunteers to find him, the question that there were no other incidents., Concluded Mayor St.-Pierre.
